SHARE Why is it so hard to call Alshon Jeffery by his proper name?

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has recorded back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in his last two years in the NFL.

Despite that, people still have a hard time calling him by the right name.

Even his own coach.

Why is it so difficult to differentiate between “Jeffery” and “Jefferies”?

For example, when the Bears selected Kevin White in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, plenty of people were excited to see the new wide receiver tandem of White and “Jefferies.”

The 25-year-old Jeffery joins forces with White, Martellus Bennett and Eddie Royal this season to form a solid receiving corps for quarterback Jay Cutler.
